A surplus of empathy

I feel too much, sometimes. Right now my wife and I are both away from home, and while I know our cat is well-cared-for, she misses us and she doesn't know why we're gone. I just wish I could explain it to her.

I get stuck in spirals, getting upset over stuff like this. To an almost cartoonish level. People think I'm playing it up as a joke, and honestly a lot of the time it's easier to just pretend I am.
